Hi all, I have a request for a mentor. Please see the info below and respond to me directly if you are interested in working with this person. Best, Madeleine Linares Volunteer Coordinator Bookshare, a Benetech Initiative 650-644-3459 madeleinel@xxxxxxxxxxxx Join us in celebrating our 10th Anniversary! -----Original Message----- From: m To: Madeleine Linares Subject: Mentour request for volunteering Hi Madeleine, I hope you are doing well. My name is M and I am currently a student. I signed up to be a volunteer for bookshare a while back but haven't had a chance to work on any projects. The process of scanning/proofreading for bookshare is really confusing to me and I don't really have anyone to guide me through it. I heard that bookshare was starting the mentour program and was wondering if I could be matched with someone that could show me the ropes a little. I am totally blind and use jaws and a braille display to access my books, so preferably, I would like to get someone who has the same experience in this area. Thanks so much for your help and I hope to hear from you soon; I'm really excited to start helping this great community. Best, M -- "All men dream, but not equally.
